MINI is set to reach another milestone on August 26 - the day that the automaker officially turns 50 years old!

We don’t want to pre-empt the brand’s monumental milestone but it’s worth noting that MINI has been one of those few brands that have transcended generations of car users all over the world. We dare say that we can count on one hand the number of car brands that can rival MINI as far as producing vehicles that have stood the test of time. From 1959 up to the present – and into the future – MINI has given countless of people the joy and pride of being seen behind the wheel of one of their compact cars.

As a sign of its popularity, the MINI has spawned countless of other variants over the years, all of which have been received positively by the worldwide consumer audience. This year alone, MINI has produced a number of different special edition MINIs to commemorate the company’s golden anniversary.

The brand has also gone as far as branching out to a number of different car markets, none of which it has ever treaded on in the past, signalling that after 50 years of pure compact car madness, the company is ready to turn a new chapter in their storied history.

Then again, any talk of future plans can be discussed at another time. The important thing is that MINI is turning 50 on August 26, and for that achievement alone, the company deserves a toast from all of us.

Cheers to you MINI!
